Hooray! The summer holidays are finally here and during the last few weeks, haven’t we had some beautiful weather to compliment them?

With the underlying issue of COVID still present, this year many UK residents are looking to day trips, staycations or booking summer holidays in and around the UK, to ensure that they can enjoy a summer break as safely as possible.

With this in mind, and the Bank holiday weekend nearly upon us, this month here at Stourbridge Automotive we are encouraging all vehicle owners and drivers who are planning long car journey’s for the summer holidays to check their Audi, BMW, MINI, Mercedes, Jaguar, Land Rover & Range Rover vehicle before setting off.

Embarking on your summer holidays – Vehicle aspects to look out for!
For instance, with the recent weeks of extreme hot weather, there is a good chance that your vehicle air-conditioning has been used excessively. By requesting that our experienced vehicle technicians’ recharge and check the gas levels of your vehicle through our air-conditioning servicing will ensure that your car’s system will run as effectively as possible.

Secondly, due to the lockdown situation many vehicle owners drastically limited their vehicle use, we have experienced a rise in customers with car battery issues; whereby the battery has become much weaker because the car engine hasn’t run regularly or, for longer periods of time.

If your car is struggling to start, or the vehicle battery is showing any signs of weakening, then please contact us with regards to ordering a replacement battery.
Finally, before embarking on any summer holidays please make some necessary checks to ensure that your vehicle operates as safely as possible.

Under the bonnet check your oil level and windscreen wash levels. Whilst externally check that your tyre conditions and pressures match those specified in the manufacture guidelines and that all lights and mirrors are clean and lights are operating in good working order.
